On Tuesday, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner signed a strategic alliance with Saskatchewan public libraries.

The partnership is designed to improve Indigenous access to the public library system and for the libraries to provide treaty education and awareness.

“We’re all people who can make a change and that is what we are doing for future generations,” said Mary Culbertson, Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan.

“I look forward to all the great things that will come from this alliance.”

The Saskatchewan Committee on Indigenous Library Services is a driving force behind the positive changes happening in the libraries. Committee chairperson Ruth Barker, said they are working hard to break down barriers, while educating and informing patrons, staff, the board, trustees and the public.

“We’ve got so much work to do yet,” she said.
